Creative Artiste #26 May 2017

Happy Friday everyone. I hope you all have a nice weekend planned. I'm hoping that now May is here the weather will get warmer and more settled.

On to today's business which is my May challenge post for
Creative Artiste.
We are a challenge blog for everyone who likes to mix their media. So, as long as you like to use various mediums on your creations we'd love to see you enter the challenge.
A big Thank You to everyone who entered Challenge #25 in April. Your projects were fabulous and our winner has been announced on the blog. 

Our theme is always
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"

This month we are being sponsored by

Lindy's Stamp Gang

who are offering a voucher for the lucky winner.

I love Lindy's sprays and have used them on this canvas.

I started by dry brushing a light blue acrylic paint and white gesso all over the canvas. Then I used texture paste through a Tim Holtz flourish stencil before
fixing lengths of lace onto the canvas with a matt gel.

I die cut the heart from card, used the stencil and texture paste and painted it with pink acrylic paint. The flowers are from my stash and I arranged them and the heart on the canvas with matt gel. The little stars are iridescent beads.

Once everything was in place I sprayed, sprinkled and squirted with Plumeria Pink, Hibiscus Rose, Salt Water Taffy and Ocean Breeze Blue Magicals from Lindy's.

This is a month long challenge so you have time to create projects and enter up to three times. A full list of the rules is on the challenge blog. For more inspiration please visit the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog to see the wonderful mixed media projects created by our talented team.  Remember to have fun and enter your "Anything Mixed Media Goes" creations in the challenge.
Have a lovely weekend everyone, whatever you have planned.
